Description

You can´t get this on the regular common market, it was found in low quantity and it is simply not available in our days. The common Celestine from Racalmuto is more dull and white - the light blue ones were very rare. On further important indicator is the incredible good luster of this piece. Each of this uncountable tiny faces is on highest possible luster and all edges are razor-sharp. And one last indicator makes this specimen even more remarkable: the contrast with intense yellow Sulphur! The luster, the contrast, the blue color of the Celestine - there is only a low number of pieces, which unifies all these things! In excellent condition damage-wise, Sulphur was on the rock.
